In phase 1 of TopTier the current practice and recent large scale incidents will be reviewed after which the first recommendations for operational improvements will be reported in September. Based on the results of the gap-analysis, phase 2 will include investigations such as lab testing and measurements campaigns on board, covering each of the above aspects. In phase 3 new technologies, design rates, calculation models and best practice will be developed and verified.
Finally in phase 4 the findings will be implemented by the participating organisations and submitted to international regulatory bodies such as IMO.
TopTier is still open for new participants. Interested?
